Have you played this before?

If not, do enjoy the game.

I have been trying to figure out how this works but am still in darkness. Don't ask me cos I don't know the solution. :-(

And if you do know the solution, please enlighten me!!! Thanks!

    HS It is quite simple. Notice that each set of colour has 5 numbers, eg, blue numbers are 3, 4 10, 17 & 18. Say, the number you pick is blue and you click blue colour. Notice that the 5 blue numbers are all in different houses. When you click that specific house you have narrowed down the number you have picked earlier. The rest of the procedures are for show only.

    achibong The 25 numbers are randomly grouped into 5 different colors. Selecting the color group (same as the chosen number) narrows the answer to 5 possible numbers.

    Next, the 5 possible numbers are placed in 5 DIFFERENT houses, selecting the house that has the chosen number in it automatically reveal the chosen number. It's then a matter of programming the answer to appear in the first door (any door) that is to be opened.

    All other steps just add a little mystic to the game.


    The probability of guessing the right answer is 1:25; it's probably 1:2 for the Education Minister. Two days.

    joshua.w this guessing game is based on 2 principles, so far as i'd discovered.
    a) the person guessing do not change his/her mind
    b) there's only one perception of reality ie. it's a deterministic instead of a free will reality. but of course, free will is only an illusion in the world we lived in.

    change any one of the assumptions & you won't get the reality (numbers) you want.

    there are 5 groups of nos:
    1) 1, 6, 14, 21, 22 (pink)
    2) 2, 5, 13, 15, 20 (red)
    3) 9, 12, 16, 23, 25 (green)
    4) 3, 4, 10, 17, 18 (blue)
    5) 7, 8, 11, 19, 24 (black)

    -1st step u choose the colour of the no's in yr mind. say, 7 which is in the 'black' group. so, when u clicked on the black icon at the bottom, the program will automatically knows yr no. is one of the following ie. one of 7, 8, 11, 19 or 24.
    - the 2nd step of the coloured boxes is dummy procedure. any colour u choose will not help towards the answer. just to confuse u further, or makes u think this is a complex game, perhaps.
    - 3rd step is crucial. notice yr no.7 is in 'hse E' & not in any other hses. when u click on this hse, the no.in yr mind is already 'captured' by the program. notice again that none of the other nos in hse E match the ones in the 'black' grp with the exception of no7. so there u have it. the program had already guessed yr no at this step.
    - step 4 is another dummy step to confuse or makes u think it's a very clever program (which it is, in a way).
    - step 5: voila the result of yr guess, which had already been determined in step 3. no matter which door u pick, the program will always show first the no. you choose ie.no.7. the programmer has chosen to reveal the other two doors if u click on them, whereas s/he can choose not to provide this choice. why? only s/he knows.

    now, to break the principle:
    - choose the same no.7 again. now, i tell myself this is not the real no.i need.
    - then i click the black icon again (the colour represented by 7).
    - step 2: ignore.
    - step 3: now, suddenly i realized this is not the real no.i need (just like this is not the woman i really loved but just another choice). in real life one has a choice. or perhaps not! so i now choose my real love. (important: choose another number, but the thing is one has to choose fr a different group). my real love happens to be no.9. so, i click on 'house B' which lived my real love.
    - step 4: ignore again.
    - step 5: the moment of truth. voila. i get...the wrong woman, err number i mean, behind the door. damn! why does this always happen to me!!!

    Which world do we lived in? Perhaps it depends on our perception of reality. But objective reality is only one. Probably. But i'll most likely not know it.

    the previous two commentators got it but for an old man like me, have to make it long-winded a bit lah :)

    masterwordsmith Dear HS, Achibong and Joshua

    I salute the three of you for your very logical, analytical and fantastic explanations!!

    You are all maths and logic experts indeed!!! Without your wonderful explanations, I was on the wrong track and barking up the wrong tree.

    Thank you for sharing so beautifully, lucidly and logically.

    Take care and please keep in touch!!!

    Best wishes
